Hamid & Saleh Moradi Sarvestani: Prisoners of the day

Dervish brothers

Majzooban-e Noor: Hamid Reza and Saleh Moradi Sarvestani are Nematollahi Gonabadi Order dervishes.

Hamid Reza Moradi Sarvestani headed Majzooban-e Noor, the website for the Order. Security forces arrested Hamid Reza Moradi on September 4, 2011, along with a group of other contributor to the website that documented the increasing persecution of the Gonabadi dervishes, during a raid on the group in the town of Kavar in Fars Province.

His brother, Saleh, was also arrested at his home in Shiraz on Septembr 7, 2011 when plainclothes security forces entered his home without a warrant.

The two men have been charged with "insulting the Supreme Leader," "creating public anxiety," "assembly and collusion against national security," "propagating falsehoods," and "membership in a deviant group." Hamid Reza Moradi faces the additional charge of "destroying public property."

The health of the two dervish brothers who have been in prison in Tehran and Shiraz for more than ten months has seriously deteriorated and their family's efforts to seek medical treatment for them have been futile.

Hamid Reza Moradi Sarvestani, who is detained inside Evin Prison's security ward, is currently facing a health crisis. He suffers from severe heart and kidney problems, and has been hospitalized in critical condition several times, but has not received proper treatment so far. Sarvestani has been transferred to hospital in handcuffs and footcuffs, but each time he has been returned to prison before completing his treatment course.

Saleh Moradi Sarvestani has been detained inside the Adel Abad Prison in Shiraz. He also suffers from serious health problems and his repeated requests for medical attention by a specialist or transfer to a medical facility have been refused. Saleh Moradi suffers from severe shoulder and arm pains, which he developed inside the Shiraz Intelligence Office's Detention Center, known as Number 100, caused by physical pressure during his interrogations.

Seven Gonabadi dervishes, including Hamid Reza Moradi Sarvestani, refused to attend their May 15 trial session at Branch 15 of Tehran Revolutionary Court under Judge Salavati, stating that they had been unable to study their cases and the evidence for their indictment, as well as the illness of two of the suspects, Hamid Reza Moradi Sarvestani and Mostafa Daneshjoo.

Instead of logic and discussion, SK is aggrevating Anahid ... and S is trying to set a fight between me and Bavafa ... LOL.

Try to answer my three questions, comrades!



Shazdeh, have shame!

by Souri on

The one who from the day one, has posted in this column to protest against the IRI, in defense of all the political prisoners in  Iran, regardless of their idiologies, is (bafava) the same person whom you always accuse of being a pro-regime who tries to " justify the current situation in Iran and the crimes of IRI"
You guys, know no limit or border when it comes to  Israel's interests!

Anahid Hojjati

IRI used to imprison activists of political parties, and to SK

by Anahid Hojjati on

You spoke about everyone in detail, but me : (  My View is I'm supporting Iran way better than the filthy IRI, the west or our stupids e.g. anti-monarchists.  Where's my Bastani with pesteh???

For every single supporter and crony of Islamist regime....

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

There are tens of thousands of Iranians who risk their lives and liberty, just like the prisoners highlighted in this articles, who want the Islamist regime to go, once and for all. So trying to Hijack a cyber blog dedicated to Iran's political prisoners, in order  to push Isamist regime's agenda will get the mozdoors no where. The balance of power is in people's favour and against the Fascist regime and it's cronies....

Yes, It's time to take sides, and people are taking sides. With Iran and its people, or against them, with their enemy,  the Fascist Islamist regime....

توجیه جنایات حکومت اسلامی، تحت عنوان اسرائیل

Shazde Asdola Mirza

All the IRI friendly lobbies in the US have now concentrated their efforts to justify the current situation in Iran and the crimes of IRI, based on the Israel boogeyman.

This is their best shot to "vindicate" IRI, because they cannot deny all the IRI crimes, but at least are trying to say that Israel is bad too.

Soosan Khanoom

Shazde Asdola Mirza you are so wrong !!!!!!

by Soosan Khanoom on

Devil has too many faces .   May be some faces of him can fool you and force you to pick a side ( basically pick a face) ..but , oh no, not I ! 

As I said before, " damn both VF and BiBi "..  Fred does not give a damn about Iran and Iranians, yet alone about the political prisoners. His non stop hypocritical presence on the political prisoners blog is an insult to all those who are in jail for a country known as Iran.  

Anahid and the rest of those who criticize Souri should simply cut it out.  At least, Souri has the gut to throw some ... on the face of someone who is constantly supporting the idea of destruction of our homeland. 

And if anyone has any doubts about Mossed and its treatment to any prisoners (regardless of their nationality ) he or she is either too naive or so full of it.  

Now, why I have a feeling that some will appear and continue to justify their positions against Souri up to the point that this blog will be closed to further comments...  Oh boy ,the same old thing !!

To those I should say ... save it !!!

Also so many thanks for the voice of wisdom that is clearly being demonstrated by some commentators here in support of Souri. 


For every "Islamist" rapist, there's one "Israeli" rapist

by Souri on

Thanks Zendanian. You said it all!
There are many intelligent and "ba-sho'our" users of the site,  who  like yourself,  have already got my point and understood what I meant.
The rest, are the people who like to stay in their "jahl-e-morakab" and I truly don't care to answer their questions.

هوشنگ جان: قبول، ساعت حزب توده‌ روزی یک ثانیه درست میگه

Shazde Asdola Mirza

But the Western world has been telling the truth for the other 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds!


آزادی مردم ایران فقط و فقط به دست خود ممکن میباشد و بس.


شما اگر "فکر" میکنید، این کشورهایی که نام بردید ذره ی دلشان برای مردم ایران میسوزد، واقعا چندان " فکر"ی در کارتان نیست.
اینها همان نیروهای هستند که ۳۳ سال است که "وعده" جنگ میدهند و میخواهند به ج.ا. حمله نظامی کنند، ۳۳ سال است که شما و امثالهم را سر کار گذشته اند، و اگر توان و نیروی مردم
ایران برای آزادی خود، به دست خود در میان نباشد، ۳۳ سال دیگر نیز شما و امثالهم را سر کار میگذارند.
غرب هیچ علاقه و منفعت،- استراتژیک، تاکتیکی، کوتاه مدت، بلند مدت-، در سرنگونی جمهوری جهنمی اسلامی نداشته، ندارد و نخواهد داشت.
تمامی این بازیهای تحریم و در طبل جنگ کوبیدن، فشار برای امتیاز گرفتن و "تغییر رفتار" آن است.
هیچ رژیمی منجمله ج.ا. با بمباران سرنگون نمیشود، (بلکه احتمالا ج.ا. با بمب باران  فقط تقویت خواهد شد).
تنها طریق سرنگونی رژیم توسط حملات نظامی خارجی ، از یک کارزار جنگی تمام عیار میگذرد ( تانک در خیابانها و پوتین روی زمین...) که اگر "فکر" میکنید کشورهای غربی، با موقعیت کنونی اقتصادی، سیاسی اشان قادر و یا متمایل به آن هستند، واقعا چندان " فکر" ی در کارتان نیست.
همگونه که در اول نیز خدمت شما عرض شد: آزادی مردم ایران فقط و فقط به دست خود ممکن میباشد و بس.
بر این مبنا تبدیل ستون "زندانی روز" به پلاتفرم و سکویی دیگر برای جنگ روانی غرب علیه ج.ا. ، و هر گونه برخورد ابزار گرایانه به زندانیان سیاسی در ایران، عملی بسیار شنیع و غیر- اخلاقی میباشد.


Ignorance Inaction should be the motto of many a ICer

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

There are only 2 sides?  Yes but lets label them clearly...

Those that wish good for iranian, their Health, their well being, their Freedom, Peace, Progress, Human Rights and Democratic Progress for iran, this group is not supported by either the IRI, the USA, the UK, or France.  Yes we know they all claim it, but their actions speak so loudly we know both the Regme and those who brought them to power do not want the good of iran.  This side was faithfully, honorably and wisely represented by the late shah of iran for which we are very grateful.

The otherside, the USA, the Uk, france, antiseular extremists, treasonous opposition groups, mek, JM etc all want the worst for Iran and this is clear in the fruits of their actions over the last 50 years.  The good news is patriotic Iranians have had the usa, the uk, france and the Iri they brought to power using treasonous anti-iranian groups, in clear contrast to group A who brought the years of peace, progress and improving human rights we all experienced. These good results for Iran was not the wish of Iranan opposition forces or the west, they all worked togehter to help thwart Iran and to harm iranians.

You decide.

I side with Group A, that struggled endlessly to help Iranians develop, the late shahs team, despite the west planning to betray him in order to destroy Iran using extremists and others internally.

I don't support B, the USA, the Uk, France, the Mek, JM etc who all play to the tume of what the USA wants, and which had become clear is a nowkar serving no Iranian, like the IRI.





رژیم فاسد، دزد، آدمکش و وابسته به امپریالیسم جمهوری اسلامی...


با شعار هایی احمقانه و عوام فریبانه  مانند "مرگ بر اسرائیل"، "مرگ بر آمریکا" ، سعی‌ بر پوشش ماهیت ۱۰۰% وابسته به امپریالیسم خویش را داشته و دارد. تکرار طوطی وارانه شعار‌های رژیم فاشیستی جمهوری اسلامی، یآ دفاع و ماست مالی‌ کردن حمله جنسی‌ "دیپلمات" جمهوری اسلامی به یک کودک آلمانی،  یآ نشان مزدوری برای رژیم، یآ ابلهیت در حد معلولیت فکری است، نه‌ چیز دیگر.

Madness is just starting ... pick a side or step aside

by Shazde Asdola Mirza on

The IRI regime with no respect for its own people, with no respect for any other people in the world ... is now confronted with the wrath of US, Europe and Israel ... the madness is just about to begin.

Pick a side or step aside ... as in any war, there are only two sides!


حتا یک ساعت شکسته نیز دوبار در روز صحیح است!


میرزا جان این مثال انگلیسی بالا را حتما شما نیز به یاد دارید.
باز هم به قول یک مثال دیگر انگلیسی "به خاطر پیام، پیام رسان را معدوم نکنیم".
آیا این حق است که ستون "زندانی روز" پلاتفرم و سکویی بشه برای مطرح کردن مواضعی که اکثریت قریب به اتفاق زندانیان سیاسی در ایران، با چنین مواضعی مخالف میباشند؟
یا حق.

Stop this madness

by Majid Zahrai on

Souri is only reacting to Fred's consistent use of this column to publish his war propaganda. Stop picking on her.

Most of us read the sad tales of these prisoners with sadness and anger against the criminal Islamic Republic of Iran. But that does not mean that we agree with those who pretend to care about human rights in Iran but in fact wish to unleash the worst kind of human rights violation on the poor people of Iran by throwing bombs on their heads.

All of you stop it. Have some respect.

F*@# Islamic Republic. F%$# war machinary.

Unite against repression and war if you love Iran.

جناب شما یا فارسی بلد نیستید بخوا نید، یا اگر به مصلحت شما نبود از یادتان میرود.
اولا: این حقیر به شما اطمینان میدهم که خیلی بیشتر از یک در میلیون منظور و مقصود سوری بانو را میفهمند. در همین ستون و در همین جا حداقل باوفا، م.م. و خود من. پس این معادله فرضی شما کاملا بی اساس و بی رابط میباشد.
دوما: خائن، و وطن فروش آنانی بودند که با کمک نیروهای بیگانه دولت ملی مصدق را سرنگون کردند، در حکومت کودتای منفور خویش، بیشترین تعداد مهدیه ، حسینه، مسجد و تکیه را ایران ساختند، و حساب همه را رسیدند، غیر آخوندها و ملایان. الان هم پس از این همه خیانت و فضاحت و بلاهت دست از وطن فروشی بر نمیدارند و روز و شب مبلغ تحریم اقتصادی و زمینه فراهم آوردن برای جنگ در ایران و تجزیه کشور میباشند.            


Defend and support Gonabadi Dervishes!

by Zendanian on

Dear virtual family

Please take a minute out of your time to email this letter of protest, or a version of your own. Please keep in mind that for us outside of Iran, with access to many resources, it would take only a few minutes to send an email to authorities in Iran, or spread the news of injustice to other media outlets, but for our most brave political prisoners, inside Iran, these few minutes, would mean so much. Many thanks in advance. 


I (we) am (are) writing this to condemn persecution and arrests of religious minorities in Iran.  Religious minorities in Iran are being constantly harassed and arrested by the Iranian government authorities.

In particular, this letter is written to express my (our) serious concern about the health and well being of Messrs Hamid Reza and Saleh Moradi Sarvestani, who have been  incacerated since  last year.

I (we) condemn the continuous gross attacks on rights of religious minorities in Iran. I (we) demand the immediate and unconditional freedom of  Messrs Hamid and Saleh Moradi Sarvestani, and all other political prisoners and call on the Islamic Republic of Iran to respect the right of all Iranians to freedom of beief, to organize, assemble and freedom of  religion, association and expression.  

Send Copy of your Protest Letters to:,,;;,,,;;;;


Souri you are free to express yourself however you wish

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

Though using this heart breaking story to make an unrelated point will truly do nothing for anyone, not even 1 in a million will relate to you because your point is unrelated to the suffering of the Iranians people and the root causes of it.  When I make points about the dispicable actions of unappreciative low self esteem Iranians who betrayed the most democratic leader in their countries modern history and helped the USA/UK/France bring the filthy IRI to power through betrayal of the late shah, misinformatio about the late shah and planning against Iranians, this hits a chord with almost all Iranians and their personal experiences.  The tortures and crimes we see here every day are relevant to all 80 million iranians, who contrary to the corporate controlled medias agenda, have every reason to seriously regret what their parents generation did and what commies, J Melli, MeK and every other treasonous anti-Iranian political group did actually do, while you in your dreams wish to distract from the removal of the regime, I focus everyone to remove the regime in an accountable an honest way learning from the pathetic lies the opposition and world media conjured up in the 70's to intentionally deceive Iranians into giving up the #1 institution that was on the peoples side. It is to remind people that it is not just the People of Iran who are 100% responsible for bringing this filth to thwart Iranians for the Last 33 years and counting, but others had a hand in this to, especially the USA, france, the Uk and anti-Iranian elements within Iran from many sides.  


کدام یک توهین آمیز تر است؟


بدیهی است که ستون" زندانی روز" بیش از هر چیز، برای جماعت ایرانی میباید ستون و فضایی باشد که ما میتوانیم در آن همبستگی و همیاری خود با زندانیان در ایران را ابراز نموده، و احیانا (زبانم لال!) از این فرصت استفاده کرده، و با بهره ورداری از امکاناتی که در خارج کشور داریم ( مانند ارسال ایمیل، گسترش کارزار خبر رسانی در مورد زندانیان، ...)
کمک هر چند کوچکی به آنان کرده باشیم.
متاسفانه حتا این ستون" زندانی روز" هم در این سایت معظم و محترم تبدیل شده به سکویی برای تبلیغ روزانه ی مداخله و درگیری نیروهای خارجی در سرنوشت ملت ایران.
جالب توجه اینجاست که چنین تبلیغ های روزانه ی که بسیار خسته کننده، تکراری و باسمه ی هر روز تکرار میشود،- منجمله تبلیغ تحریم و پیش سازی زمینه برای درگیری نظامی و جنگ و ...( که یقینا به تجزیه کشور و بد تر از آن منجر میشود)-، دقیقا سیاستهای است که اکثریت قریب به اتفاق زندانیان سیاسی در ایران ، با آنها مخالف اند، و مخالفت خویش را در هر فرصتی مطرح میکنند.
بنابر این، محترمانه از کلیه دوستان میپرسم: واقعا کدام یک از این کارها توهین آمیز تر است؛ استفاده ابزار گرایانه روزانه از زندانیان سیاسی ایران، در پیش برد مواضع و سیاستهایی که اکثریت قریب به اتفاق زندانیان سیاسی در ایران با آنها مخالف اند؟
یا واکنش و عکس العمل نشان دادن بدین فرصت طلبی روزانه؟

در وضعیت کنونی، با حساسیتی بیشتر، به یاری زندانیان سیاسی برخیزیم


تاریخ خونبار ۳۳ حکومت اسلامی ایران انباشته از سرکوب مردم حق طلب، آزادیخواه و برابری کشور ما است. حکومت اسلامی ایران درگستردن تور خفقان بر کشور ما از همه روش ها استفاده نموده است؛ حمله به صفوف مردم معترض، تعقیب، بازداشت، زندان، شکنجه، تجاوز جنسی و اعدام مخالفان رژیم.

در سال 2011 مطابق آمار منتشر شده توسط عفو بين‌الملل، حکومت اسلامی ایران 634  نفر را در ايران اعدام کرده است. 7 نفر از اعدام شدگان کمتر از 18 سال داشته‌اند. 50 نفر از این تعداد جهت ایجاد رُعب و وحشت بیشتر در ملاء عام بدار آویخته شده اند که چهار برابر سال گذشته است. البته 6 مورد غیر رسمی دیگر نیز از عدام در ملاء عام در همین مدت گزارش شده است.

اطلاعات و اخبار مربوط به اعدام ها در ایران در سال جاری نیز خبر از تداوم تشدید اجرای حکم ضد انسانی اعدام در ایران را میدهند.  بر شدت سرکوب و اذیت و آزار زنان و تشدید آپارتاید جنسی در ایران در این اواخر، افزوده نیز شده است



درود بر تمام زندانیان سیاسی


Iranians of all walks of life taking a stand for their freedom and just rights.  They are to be commanded and supported by all freedom loving folks.


  Iranians need to stand united in their support for these brave souls, support their goals and aspiration for a  free independent and prospers Iran. 

 Foreign nations which thru their apartheid policy practice the same insanity and unjust detentions cannot be a good example for the future of Iran and need not to apply. 


'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory 



Islamist Rapists

by Fred on

Regime change is the only way out of this 34 years of the Messianic Islamist Rapist barbarity.

Backbreaking airtight sanctions plus air/naval inspections is a must.
